Overseas Rovers fans wanting to watch this season’s action via iFollow can now purchase match passes, in addition to season-long subscriptions.
A match pass, costing the equivalent of just £5, will allow overseas fans to choose specific Sky Bet EFL matches to watch during the regular league season and offers fans greater choice in how they follow Rovers.
The new subscription offer is available ahead of the opening day of the season, which sees Rovers take on Southend United live on iFollow on Saturday 5th August, club’s first ever Sky Bet EFL league fixture to be broadcast online to overseas fans. A further 30 fixtures will be available to fans across the league over the opening weekend.
Additionally, Rovers has today launched a new official club app which is available for free from the App Store and Google Play Store. Fans must download the official app in order to live stream any match via iFollow when using an iOS (Apple Store) and Android (Google Play Store) device.
iFollow will, for the first time in English football, enable EFL fans based outside the UK and Republic of Ireland to watch their team during the regular Sky Bet EFL season. With an estimated 270,000 EFL fans based outside the UK, iFollow will allow clubs to enable their supporters to follow the action wherever they are in the world. More than 1,500 matches will be available in HD quality, with iFollow showing every EFL league match live unless that match has been selected by the EFL’s overseas broadcast partners.
Fans based in the UK and Republic of Ireland will still also have access to live audio commentary, highlights packages and exclusive content as part of the new offering, rebranded to replace the EFL’s previous PlayerHD platform.
